British Justin Bieber Look-Alike Ronan Parke Performs Lady Gaga’s ‘The Edge of Glory’
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ contestant Ronan Parke has been doing his North American pop star homework. In fact, he’s pulling extra credit, as the utterly adorable 12 year old channels both Canadian sensation Justin Bieber with his hair and New York City queen Lady Gaga by covering her epic single ‘The Edge of Glory’ acoustically. Parke is so precious we can barely stand it.
Look at that hair! It’s The Biebs, Part II. Parke’s perfectly coiffed bangs certainly make him a doppelganger for Bieber and we can’t deny that he has an enviable head o’ hair. But the voice? The voice! He sings like an angel, a cherub. He hits some of those big Gaga-approved notes like it’s the simplest thing in the world. Yes, he will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Midwesterner Greyson Chance, who went viral when he tackled ‘Paparazzi,’ but we have to say, Parke can sing his little pre-teen patoot off.
Surprisingly, Parke did not take the crown on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ this season (watch his audition performance here). He was the runner-up to someone named Jai MacDowall, but with this cavity-causing sweet rendition of ‘The Edge of Glory,’ he just might make a name for himself here in the States, if it catches on.
Someone in Gaga’s camp needs to get this in front of her, on her laptop, stat. It’s not that he looks like The Biebs; it’s that he sounds like a powerhouse. Gaga would be proud.
